ToolsGroup's SO99AX Named Top Add-On for Microsoft Dynamics AX

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Dec 8, 2011) - ToolsGroup, announced today that its SO99AX demand-driven supply chain planning product was named a top add-on by DynamicsWorld, an independent organization that evangelizes for Microsoft Dynamics VARs and ISVs. This is the second year in a row ToolsGroup's SO99AX solution received the honor.

According to DynamicsWorld CEO Chris Merchant, SO99AX was one of 16 Microsoft Dynamics AX (Dynamics AX) applications selected from more than 500 nominations. The basis for the selections was value for money, ease of implementation, product support, integration simplicity, functionality, number of installations, and increased Dynamics AX effectiveness created by the add-on. Customer recommendations and votes were also included in the selection process.

SO99AX is a supply chain planning add-on solution for Dynamics AX. It offers three important supply chain planning functions; demand planning/collaboration, inventory optimization, and replenishment planning. These functions can be implemented separately or over time, depending on a firm's needs.

SO99AX's integration to Dynamics AX (known as SO99AXi) has passed the Software Solution Test for Microsoft Dynamics, a major requirement for Certified for Microsoft Dynamics® (CfMD) status. CfMD is Microsoft's highest standard for partner-developed software. SO99AXi was created with MHT, a Microsoft Partner Gold ERP, and a ToolsGroup partner in developing and deploying SO99AX.

"We are honored to be recognized again as a key provider of Dynamics AX solutions," said Joseph Shamir, CEO of ToolsGroup. "Being named to this list also underscores the growing interest in the Dynamics AX community in supply chain planning and its ability to quickly and significantly impact the bottom-line."
